Td5 viscose fan bearing

Postby @landy » 09 Apr 2016 15:36

Hallo? Is there anyone out there?
Viscose fan bearing starting it's nonsense. Only when I give it gas in first and second gear, I hear a little screech.
However, if I drive like an old man (which I am ) then all seems ok. No noise.
Any short cut besides head and sump off?
Anyone knows the correct bearing size? Maybe I should use the cutting torch!

Hallo @landy
You can look on www.discovery2.co.uk/Fan_bearing.html There is a good writeup on how to replace the bearing, no need to take the cyl head off, only a bit of knuckel skin :lol: . i used it to replace a friends D90 bearing, it helped

Hi Joos,
Thanks for that link. Unfortunately I was pushed for time as I am on the road most the time. I took it to someone that was referred to me by the guy I buy all my spares from.

R 1 850.00 and about 5 hours later is not to bad. When I got my car back, the noise was still there. I made a u-turn and picked up the mack for a test drive. He heard the noise and told me it's the exhaust manifold. Hard to believe.

Over the weekend I opened up and true's Bob..The first two top studs broken and first bottom stud loose. Drill, shell and tapped the two and replaced 8 studs , nuts and a couple of gaskets and on the road again. About R 500.00 later including hose bolt on fitting.

Regards
Theo

Hi Theo
Good to hear you got sorted. Did you checked the manifold if it is not warped. If is warped, for a quick fix the guys put on 2 gaskets to help with the seal, but the best is to have it skimmed and it only warp once no problems for the future.
Best of luck and happy trails.

Hi Joos,
Luckily I have a standing belt sander and could sand the manifold till true. Landy's got more power too. More pressure on the turbo!!!!!

Have a nice weekend.

Hi Joos,
I see on your profile you have a Hi Capacity pick-up. Mine is too, just Td5. :D

Where in the Kalahari are you and what do you do in the day time?
